We welcome Dr Graham McPhail, who was co-opted onto Council as the second District 1 Council representative in February.
Graham taught secondary school music in Auckland for 21 years and then worked for NZQA as the full-time national moderator for NCEA music for three years. Currently he is Senior Lecturer Music Education at the Faculty of Education and Social Work, the University of Auckland where he runs the programme of pre-service secondary school music teachers. His research includes curriculum design and the big question of ‘what is it we should be teaching?’. He is co-artistic director of NZ Barok, New Zealand’s baroque instrument orchestra, which can be regularly heard on Concert FM, has a Level 1 certificate in snare drumming (RNZPBA), and is a past President of the New Zealand Suzuki Institute.
